Last minute Menorca holidays land you on a dramatic coastline of hidden coves, sandy bays and gently shelving beaches lined with banana boats and pedaloes. Bargain holidays to Menorca’s popular resort of Cala Galdana offer total relaxation, with soft white sand lapped by the gentle turquoise waters of the Mediterranean sea. One of the most scenic resorts in Menorca, water sports are largely based around snorkelling and paddling the shallows.
An unspoilt, tranquil island rich in ancient monuments and scenic splendour, Menorca isn’t going to attract the Ibiza crowd – but it does have some lively, upbeat resorts along the south coast. Cala n’Porter is one of the oldest and largest resorts on the island, with an abundant choice of bars, restaurants and shops. An attractive cliff top resort with a broad sandy beach, it is famous for its labyrinth of natural caverns.
Menorca package holidays in Ciudadela (or Ciutadella, using the Spanish spelling), the old capital of Menorca, offer a perfect blend of beach life, night life and culture. A picturesque fishing harbour leads to the lovely old town, dominated by its 14th century cathedral. At night, there is an abundance of lively restaurants, bars and hotels with live entertainment. Cala'n Bosch, its fashionable neighbour, has a chic marina and waterfront, while San Xoriguer hosts an exciting range of watersports. As does Arenal d’en Castell, a large popular resort with a stunning backdrop of pine-forested hills. Cheap Menorca holidays in nearby Son Parc place you in the only resort with a golf course.
From the marina and heritage of Mahon, Menorca’s new capital, to the water park of family-orientated Cala'n Forcat, we also have late deals to Menorca for everyone.
